But his mistake on special teams, where he allowed a punt to carom off his leg, leading to a Carolina touchdown, was one he'd like to have back.

Gano's previous career long was 59 yards.

Manning finished 22 of 36 for 326 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions, both by Panthers 37-year-old safety Mike Adams. He missed the first four games after suffering a high ankle sprain in late August.

He said Reid's new teammates are more eager to see what he does on the field rather than what he does before the game.
